We stayed over Christmas 2012 on a 3 night package. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the Christmas extras such as the choir singing and birds of prey display made it feel extra special.
Most of our party really enjoyed the Christmas day lunch (I personally felt the turkey was very good) and despite being very busy on the day it was all served in good time. All other meals were excellent, and overall the highlight being the lovely and helpful restaurant and bar staff.
We stayed in the Carousel room, but it seems the bedrooms do seem to vary. Our mattress was rather soft and would have rather have had one the same as another room which was much firmer. Apart from the TV which had a poor-ish picture and seemed to buzz rather loudly the room was lovely - large and with pleasant views over the lake.
Overall I would recommend for any special occasion.
